"From the Vault" presents some of the most interesting and unique objects in Denver Botanic Gardens’ collections, most exhibited for the first time. The Gardens is home to much more than living plants; its collections include paintings, pressed plants, rare books, dried fungi, historic photos and other objects. As a result of state-of-the-art facilities in the Freyer – Newman Center, these collections can be researched, displayed and cared for to a degree never before possible. Highlights include a giant puffball fungus named Fred and a botanical illustration created during the time of Shakespeare.
